Hello folks. I go by Amirah or Mira, whichever is easier. I live in Washington state and am a senior in high school. I have been a fan of the Wheel of Time since 5th grade. I love art and science, and am hoping to become an ecologist.

My favorite character in the Wheel of time is kind of a toss up between Mat, Moiraine and Egwene. I love Mat’s sense of humor and how he is a much better person then anyone (including himself) gives him credit for. Moiraine has such a big heart, and is so smart, and I am always really excited to get to read things from her point of view. And I love how Egwene goes from being a fairly normal girl from the Two Rivers to a total power house in her own right.

I think my favorite book is either Towers of Midnight or New Spring, but I also really like The Gathering Storm and Crown of Swords.

I found TarValon.net because I am working on a Wheel of Time D&D campaign and found that I liked the Library as a resource better then the Wiki pages. A little exploring from there led me here.

I have very little experiences with online communities as a whole, and am a little nervous. But I am also really excited to learn!

Welcome!! It's so good to see a new face on the boards!


Moiraine is one of my favorites too. Getting to watch her motivations, the way her mind works, her decision-making evolve throughout the series was a wonderful example of character-building. I also tend to agree with you about Mat. He's often a fish out of water, but he learns quicker than he thinks. Watching him grow throughout the books was another reason why I kept reading- I wanted to see what he'd turn into by the end.


You'll find a rather large group of people here who also enjoy D&D. In fact, one of our members was running a D&D for Beginners game that I believe is still ongoing. Us nerds tend to congregate after all! :shifty2:

Welcome to Tar Valon!

Enjoy exploring and let us know if you have questions.

I like Mat. And his hat. Though I am a huge Lan fan.

The Library is an incredible resource. Happy to hear you have found it so useful.

Inquiring minds need to know, how do you pronounce your name? Cause in my head it's the same as mine but spelt differently :look:

I've always pronounced your name as ah-MEER-ah in my head, but I don't think that's what you intended, right? :look:

Hello and welcome, Ahmira! The nerds do tend to congregate, it's true (nerd groups within the nerd group this is). 😁 I'm the one running the D&D for beginners campaign at the moment, though I'd hardly say all those involved are beginners anymore! Though D&D involves constant learning all around, I find.

I've been hoping to run or join a Wheel of Time D&D campaign myself! It's so awesome to see that you're working on one! :brofist-2:

Yep, that is exactly what intended. Very few pronounce it that way lol.
